For Noa and Callum, being together is dangerous, even deadly. From the start, sixteen-year-old Noa senses that the mysterious transfer student to her Monterey boarding school is different. Callum unnerves and intrigues her, and even as she struggles through family tragedy, she’s irresistibly drawn to him. Soon they are bound by his deepest secret: Callum is Fae, banished from another world after a loss hauntingly similar to her own.

But in Noa’s world, Callum needs a special human energy, Light, to survive; his body steals it through touch—or a kiss. And Callum’s not the only Fae on the hunt. When Callum is taken, Noa must decide: Will she sacrifice everything to save him? Even if it means learning their love may not be what she thought?

2 stars!

The cover and the blurb made a killer combo that ultimately didn’t deliver. Don’t have much to say although I loved the Fae theme, it was unique and intriguing but till I got to that point I was pretty much over with the tons of cliches the plot kept throwing my way.

Kinda felt like a mash-up of popular books (mostly Twilight and the Vampire Diaries from the start) and I was rooting for the bad brother which is not a bad thing but you can’t root for the other couple, it made Callum (which he totally was by the way) totally annoying.

As was Noa.

Have read this story a million times before. The spark – actual spark like lightening and stuff – the insta love and the I’m not good enough for you bullshit from the very start was eye-roll-worthy. Noa is the timid girl who will of course let people step all over her but when it comes to love she’ll fight to the death.

Really liked Judah, the “bad” brother and I might read the next book just for him and even better if he’s the winner in the love triangle. I did love the world building, it was genius! But it was too chaotic at times to enjoy it, more world less people would have been nice.

And insta love.

Did I mention insta love?

Insta love.
